About the Author:

I have ADD. I have been a successful Fortune 100 National Sales Manager. I have received years of corporate training including productivity and organizing techniques. The programs I learned and taught were developed by very strong sales companies. They included Bristol Myers, Revlon and Unilever. I have also spent years as an entrepreneur. I had undiagnosed ADD. I was the student who got the lecture about living up to my potential after teachers saw my SAT scores. I was finally diagnosed with ADD when I was forty. I had what turns out to be a common reaction, “Thank God there is an explanation for all this chaos in my life”. Nevertheless, a diagnosis is not a cure. The usual medications helped but like all mind affecting substances they had a negative side. My doctors went from one medication to another. I did plenty of research. I redoubled my efforts at organization. In the end, I was defeated. I am convinced that those who think ADD is a defect in the brain were right. No matter what I did, I found it almost impossible to avoid problems with tasks I did not like. How can a medication or a calendar get into your thoughts and take control right in that second when you switch to distraction or avoidance? What could prevent it? What do you do when nothing helps you consistently? The idea of what has become Active Thinking started to take form in my mind. I needed something, a thought, so small that it could fit inside my mind and prevent distraction from starting and taking hold. I needed a Mantra. However, a true Mantra is to shut out thought. I needed something that was selective about what thoughts it shut out or let in. I looked at a concept of a mind that has a specific defect. That defect is that it does not see that a task has an end. That mind subconsciously feels that it is stuck in an endless situation. What solution does the mind then have? Find something else to do. Pick up a guitar. Have a cup of coffee. Go for a walk. Go to the bathroom. Go! I am not sure this is a true mental process that happens but it does describe a real event, Attention Deficit.

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 108 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.2in.If you could have a computer chip implanted in your head that would make your entire life better would you consider doing it This book teaches a practice called Active Thinking. Think of it as a sub-routine for your mind. It is like a little application that you download into your head. It enables a way of thinking moment to moment that brings great benefits to a person who practices it. The idea came from my experience working on problems related to ADD and Information Overload. It applies to everyone who is struggling to avoid chaos in their lives created by the Information and Emotional Overload we experience in the 21st Century. This is the Dawn of The Information Age. Our minds have not yet evolved for this next step of human existence This book is going to quickly introduce the practice to you. You will be asked to start doing Active Thinking right away. The book will continue explaining how to use the practice. One description of AT could be The Art of not thinking other thoughts. Active Thinking is a mental process to control your focus. Impulse disorders interrupt your ability to start and complete tasks and lead to procrastination, wasted time and frustration. You know the problem. Practice Active Thinking and your life will become more productive and orderly immediately, with or without medication. You have tried self-control, lists, tasks, calendars, productivity books and all the other tools. They have their place but can only be useful if you control the moment when you become distracted. Here is the one tool that works inside your brain to control distraction. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781507533239
